CRV 2015
The 2nd International Competition on Runtime Verification, 
held with RV 2015, September 22 – 25, 2015 Vienna, Austria

CRV-2015 is the 2nd International Competition on Runtime Verification and is 
part of the 15th International Conference on Runtime Verification. The event 
will be held in September 2015, in Vienna, Austria. CRV-2015 will draw 
attention to the invaluable effort of software developers and researchers who 
contribute in this field by providing the community with new or updated tools, 
libraries and frameworks for the instrumentation and runtime verification of 

Runtime Verification is a verification technique for the analysis of software 
at execution-time based on extracting information from a running system and 
checking if the observed behaviors satisfy or violate the properties of 
interest. During the last decade, many important tools and techniques have been 
developed and successfully employed. However, there is a pressing need to 
compare such tools and techniques, since we currently lack a common benchmark 
suite as well as scientific evaluation methods to validate and test new 
prototype runtime verification tools. 

The main aims of CRV-2015 are to:

        • Stimulate the development of new efficient and practical runtime 
verification tools and the maintenance and improvement of the already developed 
        • Produce a benchmark suite for runtime verification tools, by sharing 
case studies and programs that researchers and developers can use in the future 
to test and to validate their prototypes.
        • Discuss the metrics employed for comparing the tools.
        • Provide a comparison of the tools on different benchmarks and 
evaluate them using different criteria.
        • Enhance the visibility of presented tools among the different 
communities (verification, software engineering, cloud computing and security) 
involved in software monitoring.

CRV-2015 Jury

The CSRV Jury will include a representative for each participating team and the 
competition chairs. The Jury will be consulted at each stage of the competition 
to ensure that the rules set by the competition chairs are fair and reasonable.

Call for Participation

The main goal of CRV 2015 is to compare tools for runtime verification. We 
invite and encourage the participation with benchmarks and tools for the 
competition.The competition will consist of three main tracks based on the 
input language used:

        • Track on monitoring Java programs (online monitoring).
        • Track on monitoring C programs (online monitoring).
        • Track on monitoring of traces (offline monitoring).

The competition will follow three phases:

        • Benchmarks/Specification collection phase - the participants are 
invited to submit their benchmarks (C or Java programs and/or traces). The 
organizers will collect them in a common repository (publicly available). The 
participants will then train their tools using the shared benchmarks.
        • Monitor collection phase - the participants are invited to submit 
their monitors. The participants with the tools/monitors that meet the 
qualification requirements will be qualified for the evaluation phase.
        • Evaluation phase - the qualified tools will be evaluated on the 
submitted benchmarks and they will be ranked using different criteria (i.e., 
memory utilization, CPU utilization, ...). The final results will be presented 
at the RV 2015 conference.

The detailed description of each phase will be available on the RV 2015 website
